Liam Gallagher Revealed That He Can't Swim While On Gogglebox

Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher appeared on a special edition of Gogglebox last night and he totally stole the show, coming out with some classic Liam-isms (I just made that word up) before revealing that he couldn't swim.

After announcing he was a huge fan of the Channel 4 show, Liam agreed to take part for Stand Up To Cancer alongside his mum Peggy and his son Gene.

Watching University Challenge, Gallagher said what we all think while watching: "We're not watching this ever again. It's stressing me out...It's a bit smug, isn't it?"

However, he was impressed by David Attenborough and Blue Planet II - of course - saying the legendary broadcaster has a 'God vibe'.

What we need is Attenborough and Gallagher to work on a project together, can you imagine how good that would be?


With Gallagher coming out with some absolute gems such as: "He's got a top beak on him, I like him," when talking about a Sheepshead Wrasse or referring to under the sea as: "Well trippy down here, innit." Seriously, TV producers you need to make this happen.

But it was Liam's revelation that got viewers laughing the most. After mum Peggy mentioned that she was a regular swimmer, he responded by telling everyone that he couldn't swim.


"You're the only one out of us lot who can swim," he said.

"Me, Noel and Paul can't swim. I can do about half a width.

"Good for you. Swimming's good. I'm jealous, man. I wish I could swim. I struggle when it gets deeper and that. That's when I start flapping around like some mad, crazy salmon.

"I struggle having a shower."


And, for some reason, everyone watching at home thought this was brilliant:


Not everyone took the piss, though, former world champion swimmer Liam Tancock offering him some swimming lessons.

As you were.

If you missed it, or just fancy watching it again, you can watch Celebrity Gogglebox on All 4.
